53. roasted tomatoes

I had a bunch of grape tomatoes in the fridge that were about to go bad, so this seemed only right….
I roasted them in the oven with some olive oil and garlic and threw them in some pasta. This was super easy and will make a great summer dinner!

About 3 cups gape tomatoes – halved
2T olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
3 cloves garlic (more or less depending on how garlicky you like things; i like garlic!), minced
16 oz pasta noodles ( i think angel hair would be really nice)
3-4 tablespoons fresh basil – torn or chopped

preheat oven to 400 degrees. toss tomatoes with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper and garlic. roast for 12 minutes, remove and toss with 2 tablespoons vinegar. roast an additional 5-7 minutes. prepare pasta according to package directions, drain and toss with tomatoes, juice from pan, fresh herbs, and additional olive oil;  add additional salt, pepper and vinegar to taste.
